"Polyester Girl" as written by and Quan/ely Yeomans....
All I want you to say is nothing at all
And all I want you to do is stare at the wall
I love your plastic hair and plastic eyes
Marvel at your plastic breasts and plastic thighs

My polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny

You're the perfect guy's accessory
Dangling from my arm for of the pretty people to see
Boy's with sassy pouts and perky glee
Great for backstage and entertainment award ceremonies

My polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny

Took you for a ride up in an aeroplane
But your body burst and left an ugly stain
Had to take your pieces back to the factory
It took them several weeks to get you back to me

My polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl
So shiny
Polyester girl

She's my polyester girl
Shiniest in all the world
She's my polyester girl
Shiniest in all the world
She's my polyester girl
Shiniest in all the world

    General CommentSuddenly I just rembered this 1997-98 hit song, Polyester Girl, and I just listened to it. and its better than I had in my mind. Regurgitator's so quirky, I love it.

    "Took you for a ride up in an aeroplane..." part is a bit haunting... the song is deliciously ironic.

    General Commentkaleidoscopeeyes8 has got it. It's supposed to be a song about a man's love for his blow-up doll.

    General CommentWhy would he take his blow up doll to entertainment award ceremonies? He's talking about plastic blondes like Pamela Anderson, not sex toys.

    General CommentWell yeah, it's a double meaning. Plastic blondes ARE sex toys!

    General CommentRemember the song "barbie girl" by aqua? It was a euphoric song. It was commenting on life. This is the same. Plastic represents the "perfect" life. Having a "polyester" girlfriend would mean the perfect girlfirend.
    "Marvel at your plastic breasts, and plastic thighs"
    It's a really good song! I was about 5 or 6 when i first heard it, thought it was great!!
